Quilted by Donna

Donna in Longmont volunteers for Quilts of Valor as a Long arm quilter. She graciously volunteered to quilt 2 QOV's for me. And I am so tickled!!
This first one was made by the Miracles group in Denver. My friend Jess is the quilting teacher for this bunch of ladies - and they do an AWESOME job. The girls are really excited to make these quilts too.
The next quilt was made by Lyn in my quilt guild. She made this twist beauty and of course it is now on my list of "have to makes" . I am really intrigued by it. I put a close up of the quilting - she did this really cool pattern that has flags and stars in it.
Thanks Donna, Jess and Lyn - you all make an awesome team!!

There are a lot of fires burning - I think 3 here in Colorado, and numerous ones in California. The smoke is making the sun really really red this morning and it is hazy. Kind of a wierd effect. I tried taking pictures - but the camera can't "see" the smoke. Anyways - if any of you are in those areas - Stay Safe!!!
